Now that we have those great Valentine’s Day ice cream heart spoons taken care of, we need something to eat! And I have found just the thing! To be honest, I have never made homemade ice cream & it’s something I plan to tackle this summer.
But I found this fabulous Peanut Butter Ice Cream recipe that looks delicious. Try & let me know how you do. Also, do you have any fun stories about making homemade ice cream? I’d love to hear them!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Kitchen Equipment Needed
- Medium Mixing Bowl
- Electric hand mixer
- Electric Ice Cream Maker
Step 1: In a medium bowl, combine the creamy peanut butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer and beat until smooth.
Step 2: Add the milk and blend on low speed for about 2 minutes until the mixture is smooth and the sugar has been dissolved.
Step 3: Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla with a mixing spoon or a whisk.
Step 4: Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Step 5: When ready, pour the ice cream base into your frozen ice cream maker bowl.
Step 6: Let mix until thickened, about 15-20 minutes. If you are adding in candies or peanuts, add them in the last 5 minutes of mixing.
Step 7: Pour into a freezer safe container and freeze for at least 2 hours.
Step 8: Enjoy your peanut butter ice cream topped with dark chocolate or milk chocolate ice cream toppings.
